As grateful as I am to find this text, and even though it is only 16 pages, I found it very confusing. The title is, "Genealogy of Jefferson Davis" but she talks a lot about the church. She mentions people but makes it unclear how they are related. She says that two of the brothers, Richard and James were charter members of the church, but Evan, Jefferson's grandfather was not mentioned. She goes on to speak about Martha Thomas who became Martha Davis but I am not sure why she brings her up, Martha, her hypothesis is, a woman who married one of the Davis young men and got into trouble with the church. She mentions N.B. as President Davis's mother, is she talking about President Jefferson Davis or Samuel Davis, Jefferson's father and President of a college? She can not be sure who Samuel Davis's father was but later refers to Evan as Jefferson's father.
In short, she does not clearly establish who Jefferson's mother is or his grandparents. This is a speech about Jefferson Davis's family, but in my opinion, it is not a genealogy of his family.
